About
At Avondale, we make extraordinary wines approved by Mother Nature. Certified organic and practicing bio-dynamic agriculture; we go beyond both these beneficial systems of natural farming by using the best 21st Century science, technology and knowledge to enhance sustainability. Our commitment to promoting life does not only lead to Mother Nature’s approval; it also ensures the premium quality of Avondale’s unique, naturally-made, slow wines. The vigour of our well-tended vines leads to excellent grapes bursting with fresh flavours that are evident in our individually-styled, classic wines, so full of life and character. Avondale is home to FABER -a contemporary farm-to-fork restaurant.

We last visited this delightful and unique winery 5 years ago and were so pleased to see how they have diversified whilst retaining the essential quality of their wines. We were treated to a lovely tasting and cellar tour by the charming and knowledgeable Antonia. Her information about each wine and the wine-making processes was really interesting and made the whole visit come to life. The cellar tour was incredible - seeing the buried clay amphora was amazing.
The wines themselves are really interesting. Although they weren't all to our taste, each had unique characteristics making them very different to the usual South African wines.
The house itself is a lovely building and the tasting room is well laid out and comfortable. The attached deli/shop has a good range of interesting food and gift items. We didn't eat in the restaurant but it looked very good.

We felt welcome from the first second. We were waited for with a glass of sparkling wine and got a small tour of the estate. That’s how a great evening started. We took all 3 courses, not because they’re small but because it was all so delicious. It was Luke who looked after us, he helped us picking wine and learned us a few things about the estate. We really enjoyed our evening at Avondale, couldn’t think of anything that has room for improvement

This is our favorite place in Paarl. And now the best value for money. Two of their most expensive wines included as starter and with the weekend steak special. The food is amazing, as always.

You cannot ask for better: great organic food, a setting that cannot be beat and wonderful staff - the small but special menu has enough variety and the people make sure you have a great experience .... catch a sunset and admire the magnificent garden - you can make a check mark next to "GREAT DAY"

The tour Kayley provided us was extremely professional and enjoyable. The drive through the estate, together with the explanation about the history and wine making methods were one of the best we had! The wine cellar is absolutely gorgeous. We were there the day the restaurant opened so unfortunately did not have the chance to visit it. We will leave that for next time!

Went once for a wine tasting and returned for another tasting and lunch with friends. I’ve been in SA a month now and Avondale stands out as one of the best wine producers for me, nearly all of their wines are stand out. The Anima is definitely my favourite Chenin. Lunch was gorgeous too, the staff and food top notch. Such a cute place.

We meet some friends here for lunch, and we were very impressed with the building, the interior design and the pleasant and very helpful staff.

There were 8 of us for lunch, a concise menu, but we all found something we liked, starters were uninspiring, Phil and I had the fish, which was delicious but nearly cold and the desserts were OK.

There was nothing wrong with the food, but because of the price we were expecting fine dining, and it wasn't.

Hope they up their game and do justice to this lovely building.

Beautiful! They now do have a restaurant, but is not open everyday. You need to visit their website to see when you can have lunch or dinner.

If there is one place I would wish to keep to myself it would be this little soul restorative spot. It was pouring when I walked in - I planned on a quick stop to check the place out before bringing visitors. I ended up spending the entire afternoon there. Relaxing. Check. Expansive beautiful views. Check. Friendly yet unobtrusive staff. Check. Wine. Cherry on the top! While this is a fun place for family, friends or both, I love visiting here solo. Bring out your black book and pen this place down for a visit. And if you like your own company, this is the place to take yourself.
